Lawn Tips

Watering

Of the elements that make up a turf grass plant, water is the most important element.  A turf grass plant is made of almost 90% water.  A dry lawn will show stress.  Water twice a week if “Mother Nature” does not provide at least an inch of moisture in this period, 3 times if temperatures remain above 95 degrees.  Sprinkler systems should run two (2) ten minute cycles two to three times a week for turf grass.

Mowing

Keep the blades on your lawnmower sharp.   Mow every 7 days dependant on growth.  Letting your lawn grow to a height of 4″ and then cutting it back to 2″ creates heavy stress on the turf that may severely reduce the root system.  This will result in thinner, weaker turf quality.
